Physical IT Infrastructure for Businesses in the Washington DC Metro Area
At the foundation of your computer network is your Information Technology Infrastructure. IT Infrastructure includes all the pieces that make up your voice, data, and video network including the cabling, router, firewall, switch, server, workstations, laptops, PCs, printers, phone system, phones, video conference system, and even the Internet and voice circuits. When your infrastructure is properly designed and implemented, all the different parts work together in harmony and your network hums along like a finely tuned machine.
Insufficient Physical Infrastructure
But when the different parts don’t know about each other and the services are competing for bandwidth, then nothing seems to work. If your network foundation is not working properly then the voice, data, and video services and applications using the network will not work properly.
Accessing files, checking email, printing documents, and even making phone calls will be problematic. If your router, firewall, switch, or Internet connection can’t handle your network traffic, then you will have delays and many other problems.
Other parts of your IT Infrastructure that are often overlooked are Power, UPS, Cooling, Backup, and Physical Security. These are critical components that protect your IT Infrastructure and ensure your network keeps operating properly.
